. it attacks cost drivers like medical liability law that are making health care unaffordable. it restores pricing flexibility to plans so a healthy young person can again purchase catastrophic insurance for next to nothing. it takes the best of the american health care system, preserves it, and corrects its flaws. i realize the senate's likely to bury this reform as it has so many, but it's important that the house pass it so that the american people can see that there is still hope to save what was once the finest health care system in the world and can be again as soon as this favored dream of obamacare finally breaks. we have just been through a government shutdown because democrats refused even to consider delaying the obamacare train wreck. they got their way, and that train wreck is now upon us. i believe in the coming months the american people will recognize the urgent warnings that the republicans tried so desperately to convey. and they'll be looking for a way out. we need to blaze that trail now. for that reason i rise to ask the house leadership to bring the republican health

to have to work together to pass any agreement through both chambers and have it signed into law. democrats are ready to make the tough decisions necessary to set our fiscal house in order, but we made it clear that we will not allow the most vulnerable americans to carry the burden of deficit reduction and it is not necessary that they do so. our goal remains a balanced approach to deficit reduction and an agreement that restores certainty to our economy. my republican colleagues and friends said much about restoring certainty, particularly in the 2010 election. unfortunately, for our economy, for our businesses, for our people, we have done anything but restore certainty. in fact, we have governed by crisis. 30 days, 90 days, 180 days, a year. arbitrary deadlines put in place which brought the country to the brink of default and to the brink of closing down government. and in fact, of course, just recently, we did in fact shut down the government. now, my republican colleagues say we wanted that to happen on our side of the aisle. ironically, 198 democrats voted to open the gov

after a judge found provisions of the abortion law unconstitutional, ruling that the measure restricted a woman's action to abortion clinics. the government will continue efforts. >> penn state university is paying $60 million to 26 young men abused by a lecturure. it comes a little more than a year after jerry sandusky was put in gaol for 45 counts of the child abuse. "consider this" is up next. you gone go to aljazeera.com for the latest news. balance. given the threat america continues to face, shouldn't these programs go forward with some oversight? >> these programs, we don't even begin to know the depth of them. we are scratching the surface right now. and i can tell you that from representing whistleblowers for years. these violate numerous national laws as well as international laws. so i don't know if it's a matter of modifying them. i think you may not have heard the level of outrage from spain that you did because you didn't hear about the head of the state employing monitored. initially, germany had a rather soft reaction to the idea its citizens were being monitored but the
them to do within the confines of the laws of the united states of america. the most important thing is to let the public know the facts so we can engage in to reform while maintaining the necessary capabilities to protect our nation. there has been a lot in the media about this situation. some right, some wrong. much has been mischaracterized, which is not helpful for those of us serious about privacy and national security. after these leaks came out, we are urged the intelligence committee to release more information to help the public understand, which they have done. today, we are holding this open hearing so we can continue to get out the facts to the american people can hear directly from the intelligence committee and outside legal experts. one key fact we need to keep in mind is that nsa's focus is on foreign threats. under fisa, nsa does not target americans in the u.s. or anywhere else without a court order. there are two pfizer authorities highlighted in the press. the business records -- fisa authorities highlighted in the press. the business records act to collect metada
the affordable care act became law, and you really like that plan, you are able to keep it. that's what i said when i was running for office. that was part of the promise we made. but ever since the law was passed if insurers decided to downgrade or cancel these substandard plans, what we said under the law is you've got to replace them with quality comprehensive coverage because that too was a central premise of the affordable care act act from the very beginning. >> essentially saying if you like your plan and they changed the plan to something you shouldn't like, i will change it for you. first off on the qualifying statement, 60% of all of these exchanges only have one option across the country. so you can't shop, you only have one product to choose from number one. number two, they did the slightest change to the health care which you hads, you are able to be kicked off, no longer to be grandfathered. the president did a wonderful two-step. instead of saying if you like your plan you can keep your plan. if you like your plan, you'll be able to keep it unless we deem it not good enough for
showing a blatant disregard for systems and laws designed to protect the hotel. as our filings made clear, these are not victimless crimes. americans trust medications prescribed for their parents and grandparents, for their children and for themselves. they are selected because they are in the patient's best nterest. the laws enacted by congress and the enforcement efforts of the fda provide important safeguards to ensure that the drugs are proof -- are approved for uses that are safe as well as effective. efforts by drug companies to introduce their drugs into interstate commerce for unapproved uses subvert those laws. likewise, payment of kickbacks undermines the independent medical judgment of healthcare providers. it creates financial incentives to increase the use of certain drugs, potentially putting the help of some patients at risk. every time pharmaceutical companies engage in this type of conduct, they corrupt medical decisions by healthcare providers. they jeopardize the public health and they take money out of the taxpayers pockets. this settlement demonstrates that the depar
's -- that actually upheld the president's health care law as constitutional. and it's the same court that twice upheld the president's executive order on embryonic stem cell research of the and it is the same court that's ruled in favor of the obama administration in the majority of environmental cases that have come before it, including ones about the regulation of greenhouse gases and mountaintop coal mining. that sound like a court doing its job without fear or favor in an impartial way, administering justice, not engaging in crass partisanship or tilting at ideological windmills. the critics of the crentsz court don't mention those decisions that i must mentioned when they're criticizing the court. instead, they appoint -- they bounty to three separate rulings where the obama administration did not fair so well. the first one of those was a ruling that struck down the securities and exchange commission proxy access rule, which has to do with corporate governance. now, i know that sound like a bunch of mumbo-jumbo. but the court found that the agency failed to conduct a proper quoft-benefit
to offer his perspective. governor, great to have you. let me ask you first, what we're seeing is a law designed to cover the uninsured. it's now booting far more people off their insurance plans than it can sign up. right now, on the nonfunctioning insurance exchanges. governor, the longer this goes on, what does this do to the president who can't distance himself from a law he set in motion and the cornerstone of his leadership agenda. >> he really can't, uma. the fact is, he can say i didn't know about these problems. well he should have known. frankly, i don't believe for a moment that he didn't know. no less than nbc indicated that the president knew three years ago that everything he was saying at the podium, if you like your health insurance you can keep it. he knew that wasn't true. if he had explained that more people would lose their insurance than would keep it and that this program will put more people on medicaid than on private insurance, this thing would never have passed. i think a lot of democrats are going to be scrambling for the exits between now and election time ne

republican wants a bipartisan group to convene about the problems with the website and the law. there are serious concerns about obamacare's long term financial liability. early numbers from state exchanges, nearly all of those enrolled are being funneled into medicaid, not insurance plans that the system will depend upon for financeing. >> look, the system will never look unless there are five to seven million people in the private side of this exchange, not the medicaid side side. they are no near that. jenna: the architect of obamacare says he is not worried. >> we have until all the way to march 31st to get to five to seven million, we expect naturally, i don't pay attention to the numbers. wait, let me finish. people will put off buying until the end and those numbers are irrelevant. jenna: he said by end of november he might have some concerns. peter doocy is live in washington with more on all of this peter. >> reporter: jenna, consumers are still having problems signing up online, on the phone and in person. and the obama administration knows that it is because no matte
by fragmented management that saw several government agencies overseeing different parts of the law without a single point person. david cutler, harvard professor and former presidential adviser. they were running the biggest startup in the world and they didn't have anyone who had run a startup or a business. it wasn't only mismanagement that doomd doomed the rollout, fear of republican sabotage and concerns over the 2012 election set the disaster two years before the site launched. "washington post" reports the white house slowed down important regulations that had been drafted months earlier, to wait until just months after president obama's election. medicare's top risk analyst, it was the president's most significant domestic policy achievement and the very aides that pushed the law through congress were risking bad implementation for a short-term political gain. regarding the president's infamous promise if you like it, you can keep it, some white house policy advisers objected to the breadth of keep your plan, they were overruled. in recent days, current aides have downplayed or dism
the troubled rollout for the law. tech problems playing the website. republicans and some dems are calling for a one year delay of the penalties people would face if they don't get some kind of coverage. >> more testimony on capitol hill over what led to the affordable care acts botched debut. next in line for questioning, marlin tavenner will testify. >> on wednesday, health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius will be questioned about the problem-plagued on line exchange. she will be the most high profile figure to testify on the rolling outout. it will be her first time on capitol hill since the october 1 launch of the website. republicans have called for her resignation, but president obama said he still has faith in her. >> penn state university is getting ready to pay out $60 million to victims of former football coach jerry sandusky, announcing settlements with 26 accusers. this comes more than a year after sandusky was accused of 45 counts of child sex abuse and sent to prison for life. penn state president rodney erickson called the settlements another step forward in th
an election law and that that moves forward so that people understand that when they have differences they can express them politically, as opposed to through violence. [speaker translates] i also appreciated the efforts that prime minister maliki has made recently to restore stronger relationships with its neighbors, including kuwait and turkey and some of the other gulf states, and expressed my interest in providing whatever support is necessary to make sure that iraq is working cooperatively and effectively with its neighbors. [speaker translates] >> we spent considerable amount of time talking about syria, where the spillover effects of the chaos and assad's horrific treatment of his own people has had spillover effects in iraq as well. [speaker translates] >> and we agreed that it's in the interest of both countries to try to bring about a political settlement, a political transition, inside of syria that allows the syrian people to make decisions about their own lives, while, at the same time, isolating extremist factions that could end up not only threatening people inside of syria, bu

to improve it every day. every day. >> the president also defended his health care law. he believes critics are not telling the whole story. cbs news political director john dickerson is in washington. john, good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> how does the president get on top of this? >> i think he gets on top of it by having a website that actually works. most obviously that's because he didn't want the biggest public manifestation of his signature law. he wants that not to be kind of a flowing mess, but also he wants it to actually work so that there can be this flood that they hope is good stories of people signing up. that's good for policy reasons because it means the law will be working but also from a crass public relation standpoint it means they can point to people and say, look, the promises we make about law, it's true. they're happy. he needs those stories to come in. >> okay. but not all the problems are turning out to be true and he's had to modify some of them. so does that put his credibility at risk? >> right. the promises were always at issue with this law for the
in most states. and today, one victim joined john carden at the university of maryland school of law to unveil proposed legislation to make it a felony. >> the anguish i felt over being betrayed, exposed, excuse me, and put in danger was multiplied every time i was told there's nothing we can do, no crime has been committed. >> if the law passes, maryland will join new jersey and california to make revenge porn illegal. >>> we'll take you to the reunion for an american soldier and the man who saved his life. vo: "wrong" "too extreme" "senseless" meet the tea party ticket. together waging "ideological crusades" to ban abortion even in the case of rape and incest. cuccinelli and obenshain even sponsored legislation the post says could ban birth control pills. and all three oppose comprehensive background checks to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and the dangerously mentally ill. a tea party ticket - wrong for virginia families. independence usa pac sponsored this ad. i'm mark herring, candidate for sponsored this ad.nd i vo: this is what mark obenshain called a "common sense
municipal police department, which is the only function of upholding the law. this is really radical moment in american policing what they said we are not going to focus on solving crime are making cases. we are just going to be here to gather intelligence, to be a mini cia kind of thing. it was this incredible decision that we'd never understood the significance for many years. the what they did if they took a look at all the nine about then hijackers portfolios, their files and networked for commonalities and things that would say how'd we noticed us along the way, maybe we could have done something. so they created a team of plainclothes detectives from a south asian arab descent and sent them out into the neighborhoods come into muslim neighborhood, basically eased up and write what they heard and where were egyptian coffee shops where what barack is get their hair cut? where do people of palestinian descent, where did they watch soccer? what they did was created this giant ethnic map of the city that was the foundation of what has been a 10 year extremely secret program the n.y.p.d. ha
, but there have been a whole host of problems with the implementation of the law. now, after initially blaming a volume, they said it was a sign of public enthusiasm, a good sign after the october first launch of the website, now marilyn tavennar, she's over the agency that oversees the implementation of the obamacare. >> i want to apologize to you that the website has not worked as well as it should. we know how desperately you need affordable coverage. i want to assure you that healthcare.gov can and will be fixed, and we're working around the clock to deliver the shopping experience that you deserve. >> reporter: a lot of indignation, and umbridge on the part of the republicans. the irony when this website is up and functioning it will help millions of people to enroll in the affordable care act. dave camp is the republican chairman of this committee. from michigan. he wants to know how many people have been successful in going through the website and obtaining insurance. >> do you not know? do you know have any idea how many people have enrolled? >> folks are still in the process of enrol
